Drive carefully on snowy roads

Category: 

Thunder Bay Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are asking motorists to drive with extra care and caution as a significant snow fall is expected in the Thunder Bay area later today and into tomorrow.

The OPP would like to remind motorists of the following vehicle and road safety tips to prepare for winter driving conditions:

  • Slow down and drive according to weather conditions. Speed too fast for road conditions is the number one cause of winter collisions.
  • Leave extra space between vehicles. Stopping distances are a least double on snow covered roads and even longer on icy roads.
  • Do not to call the OPP for road conditions.

You can call 5-1-1 or visit their website at https://511on.ca/ for interactive up to date road conditions anywhere in Ontario.
